One Size Does NOT Fit All!

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Realty Specialists Inc., Brokerage

Every home has it's own features and therefore it doesn't fit everyone's needs. When your life changes, so do your housing needs. As a homeowner, you will have to decide what are your most important needs and should you continue to love your home or do you move!

Some of the changes could be...new editions to your family which could be children, pets, elderly parent(s), becoming an empty nester, or a home office. To stay or move would depend on emotions and finances.

Should you renovate?

If you are outgrowing your space then perhaps your option would be to finish the basement, an addition may be the answer, or just reconfiguring the floor plan. Perhaps a cosmetic change is in order - paint, appliances, cabinet finishes, flooring, etc.

Love It or List It?

It may save you some money to purchase a ready made home rather than buying brand new. Visit some open houses or talk to a Realtor to do some price comparisons.

What's the real estate activity in your neighbourhood?

This is where a Realtor comes in handy. Get a Market Evaluation done on your home to compare it to those that have sold.

Are you attached to your neighbourhood?

It is a bg change to your family. You may be changing schools, shopping, other amenities.

Are you willing to take on a new mortgage?

If you are up-grading, then you probably will be increasing your mortgage. If you have been fortunate to be mortgage-free, this could be a very difficult decision. If you are down-sizing, it can help you become mortgage-free sooner.

As you can see, each home is particular to each family. Each transaction that I have done is different. No two transactions are alike!
